Minerva sure knows how to say some misleading things!
Or maybe it’s just my inner perverted fangirl who is trying to mess with me.
Why? Just… WHY? Why can’t we know the identity of that mysterious girl yet? I almost made a headdesk when the next page changed the viewpoint. And with the way things have gone throughout this chapter, I doubt we’ll find out until the tournament is over. It’s not a bad thing, but it’s really a mean tease. That girl better have an impressive identity now that there is so much suspense around her.
So, it turns out that Arcadios is a man very dear to the princess, who turned out to be the mastermind behind the Eclipse plan. She told Darton that she wasn’t supposed to speak of the plan, which immediately made me assume that she is connected to Zeref somehow. But then again, this plan was initially made to stop Zeref, so I could be wrong. I guess nothing will make sense until we know the cloaked girl’s identity. But one thing is certain, and that is the fact that Fiore’s existence is being risked in this plan. The princess must have a very strong resolve to see this through if she can bet an entire country on this Eclipse thing. I have a hard time thinking of the princess as a villain but that kind of risk is not really something a hero would do. Sure, no one will suffer from this because it will probably be as if the country never existed, but nothing is really certain. Oh well, at least this makes things more exciting – but not as much as the current battle between the three girls in the arena!
Everyone knew that Erza would eventually be facing Kagura and Minerva, but at the same time? Wow, this battle sure is exhilarating. To be honest, it’s hard for me to care about Kagura now that Minerva is in the game. I just want to see someone beat that woman, and it’s not just because of what she did to Lucy. It’s also because I want someone to change that nasty attitude of hers. She will be a tough opponent for Erza, no doubt. I just hope she and Kagura don’t team up to take Erza down together. That would be so unfair. But then again, Erza who took out one hundred monsters on her own should be able to take these two women down. Kagura will after all, not fight using her full strength unless she is facing Jellal. But Erza and Jellal share a very special bond, so who knows? She might draw her sword in the end. Well, however this battle goes, it is bound to be exciting and beautiful, I mean hey, all three girls look gorgeous! I’m really glad Minerva showed up so Mavis prediction could be somewhat correct. I feel sorry for Mavis, but at the same time, I found myself laughing at her misery. She is truly adorable. Well, having said that, we’ll see how these three girls manage throughout this battle in next week’s chapter. I’m really looking forward to that!
